    It would make 100% blue birds with walnut combs, half of them would have tails and half would not.

    Does your Araucana have any hint of yellow, orange, or red in him? If he does, your offspring will also have a chance of being yellow and blue spangled.

    Sort of like this, found on the chest of one of my Araucana cockerels:

    Would there be any lacing?

    No, you'd need to cross back to the Sebright again, and get black laced blues.

    If your Araucana had the gold leakage, you might get some neat lacing in the second generation back to the Sebrights. (blue laced, blue laced gold, silver laced, gold laced)
